Quiche Lorraine Florentine
Quiche Lorraine Florentine features Swiss cheese, turkey bacon, and spinach in your favorite pie crust, gluten free option.
If you haven’t noticed by now, my posts do not follow a linear format. I sometimes have a method to the order of my posts, but sometimes not. And there are things I’ve made and keep forgetting to post, or when I think to sit down and type out the recipe, I forget what I did.
I’m a little embarrassed that I’ve waited this long to post this quiche, which I made for Easter breakfast, along with the Monkey Bread Muffins, back in April! (yeah I know it’s July) I kept putting off posting this because I had so many Easter posts, then I lost the paper where I wrote down what I had done, and by now it’s just a faint memory. But, I really wanted to share this recipe because we thought it was really good.
This was Bob and my first Easter alone, so I wanted to make the day special by making a great Easter breakfast and dinner. My family always has quiche on Christmas morning, so I figured there’s no reason it wouldn’t work for Easter as well. I saw this quiche recipe on Kerstin’s blog and decided I could change a few things to make it a little less healthy (haha).
This quiche is a hybrid of Quiche Lorraine and Quiche Florentine, in that it has (turkey) bacon and Swiss cheese combined with spinach. For this reason, I decided to call it Quiche Lorrentine. Lame, I know, I feel like Rachael Ray! I can’t believe I’ve never made a quiche from scratch before, because this was so simple to assemble and so delicious!
